Abstract

With traditional film cameras, important creative parameters such as the depth of field and the viewpoint are burned into the footage after acquisition without the possibility to change them in post-production. In consequence, special attention is required on set to frame the scene and to pull the focus. Against this background, we propose a light-field capturing and processing system, suitable to be used on set, and allowing to change the camera viewpoint and focal plane in post-production. Our approach involves a synchronized array of compact high definition cameras to capture multiple viewpoints enabling a high image quality of the resulting footage. Based on computational imaging methods virtual camera positions and synthetic apertures will be created afterwards. First scenes captured with such an array will be demonstrated.
